La banalidad del mal

La revista Harper's de Enero trae una entrevista interesantísima con Andre Müller, mejor conocido como el "escultor de Hitler", que logra vislumbrar la forma como los seres humanos logran autoconvencerse de las ideas, al mismo tiempo seductoras y descabelladas, que proponen los sistemas totalitarios:
Look, if you're a sculptor with a penchant for the monumental, now and then you have to produce a large sculpture. It's only human. You could call it human weakness. The impulse toward monumentality is a part of me. The monumental is my sickness. I'm always delighted to see a successful monumental sculpture, whether it's Michelangelo's David, or Andrea del Verrocchio's statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni, or the Venus de Milo.
